A US official said Friday that Russia is planning to carry out acts of sabotage to create a pretext to invade Ukraine.

A Pentagon spokesman said Russian operatives were planning a “false flag” operation to allow Moscow to accuse Ukraine of preparing an attack. Russia has dismissed these claims.

The news comes after a week of talks between the United States and Russia aimed at defusing tensions.

Ukraine on Friday accused Russia of being behind a cyberattack on dozens of official websites.
